Comment "Pirate" ISPs already exist (Score 2, Interesting) 204 204

I've been running a UK ISP for a couple of years now, aimed at very heavy users who want privacy and no restrictions. I don't know if my customers are pirates or not but as long as they conform to the AUP "don't do anything illegal or stupid" then they are more than welcome to use their connections for whatever purpose they choose.

When you charge pennies for a service - the big UK ISPs have been on a race to zero for years now - you'll come unstuck when people actually want to use the service. Duh. Whatever happened to charging a fair price, and then delivering a fair service? It's not rocket science.

This is disconcerting. Why is it always the stick and not the carrot with these people?

The entertainment industry treats its customers as criminals. The real crime is the price of a DVD or album. Piracy will exist as long as the prices and distribution models remain untenable.

I hope the UK government never act so heavy-handedly. My own ISP, Super Awesome Broadband http://superawesomebroadband.com/ is totally opposed to such bullshit.
